M-RP assists independent artists and emerging performing arts groups by creating performance opportunities and providing administrative, artistic and technical theatre support for many national, regional and local DC area groups including the all male EDGEWORKS Dance Theater, performance artists Holly Bass, folk-hop group PS24, NYC-based INSPIRIT, internationally renown Nejla Yatkin, hip-hop dancer-choreographer Jennifer Archibald, award-winning teacher Lynn Welters and her New School of Dance Arts, and “DC’s preeminent modern dance company”, CityDance Ensemble.
MRP Management, a division within the organization, is employed by professional artists to act as a booking agent and help with career management.

M-RP cultivates partnerships to help artists and organizations do what they cannot do alone. M-RP has partnered with Joy of Motion Dance Centers to create The Black Expressions Master Class Series and co-produced Masters of West Coast Dance: Ito, Horton, and Lewitzky, a five-day event in Rockville, MD and Washington, DC, that illuminated the work of three seminal artists: Michio Ito, Lester Horton, and Bella Lewitzky, through a series of master classes, lectures, panel discussions, and performances.
